I am using the Themer launcher.
The icons are from the Min icon pack.
For minimalist home check out Themer
Also check out Note Buddy for S-pen sound customization.
Nova is a launcher. Launchers don't require root. In fact, there are tons of launchers to choose from. Some look the same as the stock Android experience, others give the user an entirely new UI. An example of a different UI would be Themer in which people design their own themes where there are no limits on what the UI can look like and distribute them to people using Themer.
Root is literally gaining access to the OS files. Rooting in itself does nothing. It allows you to modify how Android works. This can be everything from changing various parameters such as DPI or enabling wireless hotspot to running apps that otherwise would be restricted such as Viper4Android which modifies (improves) how audio is processed. I'd do your homework before pursuing root though. Know why you're doing it before you do it then thoroughly study how to do it because 1 mistake and your phone can become a paperweight.
There is Themer, which is basically a launcher. You can choose through thousands of user submitted themes and apply them. Little work for you. Here are some submissions. If you have any questions just ask :) I may not have all the answers tho because I do all my own themes.
Same here... out of all of them I've "settled" with Nova.
Once in a while I'll use Themer to get a completely different feel... but it doesn't last long and I go back to Nova.
I'm pretty sure Themer Launcher can do all of that (maybe not the swiping on icons thing, i've never seen that before) and has lots of nice theme templates for you to play with.
I also hate that white search bar in my face all the time. I'm using a launcher called Themer. Pretty lightweight launcher that doesn't seem to mess with functionality yet allows some customization.
If you try it, just be sure to lock your icons & widgets down in Advanced Settings/Desktop or they do weird stuff on reboots.
I'm stock & unrooted.
C'est themer, plus gourmand en ressources que d'autres et pas exempt de petit bug mais il tourne parfaitement sur mon zenfone et vu que je ne suis pas sur mon téléphone tout le temps je préfère avoir un beau truc (il y en a des vraiment uniques) plutôt que quelque chose de ultra optimisé mais plus sobre.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on 4.4.4.
The lock-screen works great with Deezer, it's the custom themes/launchers like Themer that pull API info and display it on the custom HOME-screens that doesn't seem to be compatible with Deezer.
Themer is a Launcher, so having Nova Launcher and Themer you actually have 2 launchers.
You either drop Themer or Nova, the fact that you have both is the reason why Nova keeps resetting Themer and removing the theme.
...but the LCARS theme is not on their anymore. I had to download it from somewhere else. I'll see if I can dig it up again...
Try Themer (its free!) and it supports gestures. Set your task as a shortcut. Also, look into Google Rewards that's how I get credit to buy Tasker add-ons.
It is a Themer skin called "Right Now." You can download Themer and then search Themer's store for the skin to install it.
I think that this particular set is from this launcher:
Not sure if it's available as a standalone widget, I just installed one of the themes using Themer
Makes me want to make one that matches the Division UI a little more. Gonna give it a shot using Themer...
Themer is pretty good.
You will need a launcher. I use Nova. There are others but I prefer Nova. That's basically it. Unless the theme requires something extra you might need Zooper widget, or some other widgets based on what is required. If you want different icons, you will need an icon pack. Plenty of good free ones and paid ones are available on the play store.
Nova. You don't really need premium, although I do have it. But if you are just beginning try the free on first. Stuff that can only be used in premium (like gestures, re-sizing icons) will be marked with 'PRO' in the free version.
No. Atleast not for me. The google now page is inaccessible since that is part of the Stock launcher. But if you really want it you can use button inputs to make the home button open google now page when you tap it. (Or buy the premium and use gestures to use swipe up or double tap screen)
I don't quite understand your question, but when you start an app that has multiple options you'll get an option to choose and you click 'Always' instead of 'Just once'. If that is what you are asking for.
Nova. Nova. Nova. lol. I haven't used any other launcher so I don't know.
Google/Youtube is your friend. Here are a few links to get you started.

Setting up a theme using Nova is very tedious, (if you want a nice unique theme) but very rewarding. You will love how your phone looks, completely unique and different from other's phones. If you want 1-click setup try using Themer. I've never used it so I don't know how it is, but hey its an option.
Here is what my setup looks like [link]
The app is called themer: [link]
Launcher is Themer by Mycolorscreen.
The theme used was; Set Fire
The wallpaper: [link]
The music widget was included with the theme so I don't know if you can get it separately.
Icon pack is Min: [link]
The quotes I just built from scratch with Zooper widget
It's just amazing all I can say that.
just install Themer and apply one of the many themes already included
You could always download Themer from the Play Store.
[link] this is what you need
another option is an app called themer takes the work out of it but has the same type of effect
Not sure about other launchers, but Themer can do that.
Have you tried Themer?
It kinda reminds me of Themer. I like Themer but wish it supported tablets.
This is the actual app.
If this link doesn't work for you (it does for me) it is not available in your area.
I can list all the software I used to get my desktop / phone looking this way. If you have a more specific question I'm usually willing to help.
As always, [link] is a great source of information for ricing windows.
Here are the instructions
1) Download themer
2) Download this file to your phone
3) move the zip file into internalstorage/mycolorscheme/themer/exported/zip
4) once this is done double tap on the homescreen and the themer menu will come up at the bottom
5) select themes and then go to the categories section
6) select exported and then pick the Assassins Creed option.
If the wallpaper doesn’t copy over I’ve posted it here. The icon pack is flight lite. Good luck. If anyone needs any help feel free to message me.
I'm using Themer. It's pretty cool.
Themer, a third party launcher, has a setting that lets you do that.
Pretty cool IMO, dont use it personally but here ya go.
If you install Lollipop, there isn't a way for you to root and install CM12 after. If you wait for the OTA Lollipop update, you will have to downgrade to a rootable version of KitKat before you can root it, bypass the bootloader to install TWRP and then install CM12(or any flashable ROM).
I'm not too familiar with /r/AndroidThemes, but if they show off a CM12 theme then this can be done with CM12. Sometimes these themes are done with an application called Themer
I don't know enough about Themer to know if it requires root or if it is compatible with CM12. This is something you'd have to look into.
CM12 does have a 'theme engine'. There is a Google+ community specifically for CM12 themes
And there are CM12 themes all across XDA and the Google Play Store
If you do a factory reset while on CM12, it will just reset CM12 and not bring you back to stock Android. In order to get back to stock Android(aka LG's stock firmware), you will have to downgrade
This downgrade guide is also what you will need to do if you accept the OTA update to Lollipop and then change your mind later and want to root and install CM12.
Following that downgrade guide will bring your device back to the factory default firmware and it will be as if you had just pulled it out of the box(eg, this is what you need to do if you root/install cm12/mod your device and need to return it back to Sprint). They will not know you have done anything to your device if you follow that guide and downgrade back to KitKat
And no problem. I'm happy to help. If you get stuck or have any other questions, I am always willing to help out if I can
